A little plein air piece from a few weeks ago up at the San Diego botanical gardens. They have a really energetic and moody waterfall tucked in the hillside whose course and chatter I'm sure I wouldn't tire of even if I sat by it for days and weeks on end.

I'm currently in my studio wrapping up a piece from my main series of work, and although it's been stop and go for me over the past few months I'm looking to remedy that this week. Excited about it!

New Things

New paintings of old things, actually. Historic books and buildings, all the places my mind likes to tuck itself away.

 

Back to the Wild

After a summer so hot there was really no way for me to get out and paint (I salute you who did, you're nuts) I'm finally able to start my plein air work again. Starting small with a little wildflower patch at the Norfolk Botanical Garden.

The Love Affair Continues

The stories this garden tells, I want to know them all. Two new plein air pieces from the past few weeks at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens.
